Paperback
If God is in control, are people really free?

This question has bothered Christians for centuries. And answers have covered a wide spectrum. Today Christians still disagree.

Those who emphasize human freedom view it as a reflection of God's self-limited power. Others look at human freedom in the order of God's overall control.

David and Randall Basinger have put this age-old question to four scholars trained in theology and philosophy. John Feinberg of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and Norman Geisler of Southern Seminary focus on God's specific sovereignty. Bruce Reichenbach of Augsburg College and Clark Pinnock of McMaster Divinity College insist that God must limit his control to ensure our freedom. Each writer argues for his perspective and applies his theory to two practical case studies. Then the other writers respond to each of the major essays, exposing what they see as fallacies and hidden assumptions.

A lively and provocative volume.

- Publisher If God is in control, are people really free? The Basingers present four views on this thought-provoking question: Bruce Reichenbach on God's self-limited power, John Feinberg on God's control through foreordination, Clark Pinnock on God's self-limited knowledge, and Norman Geisler on God's control by foreknowledge.
